It was thi. .spirit, no doubt, that moved two in dividuals to complain in a recent case that certain ch'l Iren shouhl le .sent to a state institution for children, re p;m!less of the fact that th mother was willing to at lea.-t try to feed ami Vcp them. Mr. Mitchell". mother from Scotts blufT is keopini? house for him during her absence. I Last Saturday while working for , Robert Mitchell, Claude Hookham had what mi)fht have hoen a very serious I accident. While leading hi horse through a gate, he either kicked or struck h'"m. Claude was unconscious for a short time, and really doesn't remember how It happened, but no on will care just so he get along all right. He fels pretty good but is quite badly bruised. Marshall Sheldon was on the sick list Saturday and Sunday. I.. I Dyers and ('. K. Dyers were callfrs at the Cal I,eis home Sunday. Hurl Dyers, W. A. Dyers. Dert Lance and C. Woods went to Agate Sunday. Last Monday night the biggest rain of th spa-nn fell. There was 2: is inches fell here. The neichUrs south got a very bad wind and very little rain. It wasn't that thpse people did not feel that this mother thuuM have help, ind that they as individuals owed her atnd her childern a certain amount of service, but thee folks said they had paid taxes and the tale thereby be came their servant, or provy, to do what waj necessary for these children. I often question whether from moral standpoint we have a right to delegate to another person, or institu tion, the responsibility we owe suffer ing humanity. Of course, there will be thoM. who will say, "But what of our hospitals and other benevolent institu tions! Were it not for collective ef fort these could not exist." To a cer tain extent this is true, but this is dodging the question under discussion. We are speaking of the daily simple duties we owe one another in our daily life. We insist that the curse of the acre is the increasing tendency to do avay with real, personal service to one un other. Consequently, we ae a.-, a rae robbed of the sweetest ble.ssing of life the cominir into contact with needy in our effort to help them. There are Itxlire members who mp- rt the lodye with their money, but when it comes to attending the meet ings or business of the lodge they are not there. They hie perfectly willing to let the others do it. In the churches we have many who are will ing to pay other folks to do their work, but when it comes to contributing )crsvnal service they are not theie. The world is hungering for the per sonal touch. The tnjn in need will ap preciate the personal touch much bet ter than money. Try it out on the reedy family in your neighborhood; that sick neighbor; that discouraged friend; that down-hearted ami tiisap-j-ointed acquaintance who has suffered a reverse of some sort. Cio to them, with a personal word of cheer, and you will find that a personal visit will do them much more good than a dkzen bouquets of flowers. "Say It With Flowers" is a common saying, and I feel that too many of us sre doina; that very thing. The world wants personal attention, and will appreciate it. You may call up your neighbors over the phone and invite them to church, or send them a written invitation, but the thing that will like ly bring them thre is a personal visit and personal imitation. To Live Again the Old Pioneer Days at Platte River Roundup On Augu-t 22, 23 and 21 will Ix? staged one of the most spectacular re productions of pioneer life of fifty years ago. This event will take place in the open country on the old range and Indian country north of Suther land where nature provided a natural show ground and where the earmarks of the old range days still exist. A few of the eld cow boys, Nate Tre go, John Schick, hl .Mcl-Iothlin, tAl Coates. Tug Wilson, Jack Veach, Will Coker, Frank Coker, Jack Palmer. Bert Snyder, John Harsfield, Chas. Chess more, Lee Cae, James Cuffey, Fred Pierson and others will take part and stand back of the enterprise. This is a guarantee that the Fioneer Days Exhibition will be a place for you to enjoy three days of sports anil have an outing in the open country free from du."t and where the best water in the country is found. Chiefs Two Sticks, Running Dog and Two Thunder are expected. There will also be a Ikjvv of Western Cow Girls who will do their part to make the three davs exhibition a success. The first "lay will consist of sports peculiar to the west in those days such as riding bad horses and Pteers, roping and branding, wild horse races, and a ball game between the cowboys and a city team. The second day will see a real re production of the old roundup, the trail herd of a thousand cattle, the horse cavy, the bed wagon, cow camp, branding of calves, etc. The program of the la.t day will show an envgrant train which will be attacked by Indians who wiil cap ture and massacre the men and chil dren and hold the women captives. They will pillage and burn the wagons ami attempt to escape with the women and horses. Rangers and Foldiers save the women and put the Indians to rout. The second and third nights will how the Siouv Sun Dance, the Indian War Council and War Dance. A goo l orche-tra will he secured and a Lmce will be given each night in one of the largest dance halls in west ern Nebraska. It is reported that a car'oad of wild ponies will if brought nere trom tne plains of Idaho. An effort is s.No being made to have Cuney, The C;ow, who was an Indian scout for the government and the only one to est-are at the time of the Custer massacre, to be present during the three davs entertainment. We are fast doing away with the personal element of religion. We like to perform our religious duties as lodge members do, through proxy, in the shape of committees; but it cannot be done. God expects you to use your personality for the building up of his kingdom, and you cannot by your money be the sum ever so great fulfill these responsibilities to your Ood or neighbor. The greatest need .of the church is not more money; but more consecration of self. In fact, un less you consecrate yourself along with your substance you consecrate noth'ng. The personal touch is infi nite y more powerful tlun the imper sonal.

This is the question that will be answered at the morning hour of worship. We shall endeavor to give a sensible answer and shall follow the Scriptures in presenting the claims for Lord's Dav observance. The evening services will be held in the Baptist church. The sermon will be preached from the subject, "The Jerusalem Church". The record of this church is taken mostly from the Book and Acts. If vou will read this i-v rrore Sun day, then it will be easier to follow the minister in his sermon. Ked rox the Indian Chief is ill in a Denver hospital and will not lie pble to I in Alliance as we had hoped. We learned recen'.'y the names of two ills that seem to afflict ponle on the i.oru s Day, they are "s'eeping sickness" and "gasohneitis . We hope tnat in tne future these will bo conquered by all. Remember the Bible School and Chrisitan Endeavor meetings at the usual hours. Much depends upon you. Come to the church with a message and a welcome. S. J. EPLER, Minister. BAPTIST CHURCH. I net siiml:iv there was a slumn in the attendance in the Sunday school. Let us make up for this next ,unnay. The pastor has been unusually busy the past few days looking after the sick. We need to pray more for the State Tax Levy Wiil Be Increased Almost 50 Per Cent This Year The state levy of 3.0.1 mills to raise approximately $10,000,000 of tax rev enue needed to run the state govern ment from Auditor Mar-h as to the Nebraska for the next fiscal year is the rate which Tax Commissioner Osborne e tiniates will te required. The state board of equalization and assessment will meet either the la-t of this week or the first of next, to fix the amount of the levy. It will have before it an official state ment from Alitor Marsh as to the appropriations made by the legislature and the proportion thereof which must be raised by taxation. As the twirl will. have, bv that time, complete assessment returns of the state totawed and tabulated, it will be a sirp!e matter to compute the tax levy necessary to produce one-half of the b'ennial revenue. The rate may be slightly lower or higher than 3.0.1 mill, but it will he in that ne;irhiorhod. This will be about 47 per cent in crease m the stte tax levy ubove c year ago, when the r:;te was 10.31! mills on one-ti!'th valuation, or abiut '1.0 mills on actual va!ue.

Such people merely boast that they are blind to their own interests. People who closely follow the advertisements in The Herald are always getting the best bargains and saving the most money. The merchant who advertises is not only proud of what he has to sell you, but he is inviting you to seize op portunities to benefit yourself. The non-advertiser neither issues you an invitation to visit his store, nor ex hibits any pride in the bargains he may have. Do you ever go where you are not invited? The advertisers in this newspaper are inviting you to visit them. They are also proving that they have confidence in their goods and prices. Further than that, they are backing up the efforts of the biggest factor in any town's prosperity the newspaper that is always heralding forth to the country the advantages of it's town and territory. If you don't read the advertisements, that is your misfortune. Don't boast of it, for that is boasting of your ignorance. People who study the newspaper advertising columns are the people who save money. Some merchants say: "We don't need to advertise; everybody knows us." Fcrty years ago "St. Jacob's Oil" was r.s well known as "Kodak" is t'vlav. "Everyl)ody knows ut us." said the manufacturers, and ceased advertbing. today "St. JaccL's Oil" is as dt.i as J. CV.ciar!
